Undaunted by sagging poll ratings, Newt Gingrich continues to lay the groundwork for a possible presidential run in 2000. Monday he moved closer to the nation's political center when he chose Pennsylvania Rep. James Greenwood, a pro-abortion rights moderate, to take the helm of the committee planning party strategy for the 2000 elections.

Greenwood succeeds former top Gingrich lieutenant Bill Paxon, who was ousted (or resigned, depending on who you believe) after last month's failed coup attempt.
